Copycat Recipes You’ll Wish You Knew Sooner

It’s always nice when you can head through a drive-thru or go out to dinner for your next meal, but we can’t all treat ourselves like that every day — especially on a college budget! The good news? If you’ve got a kitchen at your campus digs, there’s no reason why you can’t whip up some of your favorite restaurant dishes right at home. Do they taste like the real thing? You be the judge.

Bloomin’ Onion.

Compare to: Outback Steakhouse

This one is always a crowd favorite, so it’s no wonder somebody took the liberty of recreating this delicious appetizer. How about whipping it up for game day? Find the full recipe here.

 

Barbacoa.

Compare to: Chipotle

Ditch those long lines at Chipotle —  You can make that same delicious barbacoa at home if you’ve got some patience and a slow cooker! Another plus? You don’t have to pay extra for guac. Find the full recipe here.

 

Crunchwrap Supreme.

Compare to: Taco Bell

There’s something about Taco Bell that’s so craveable, and this copycat crunchwrap is no exception. How about cracking out this recipe for your next Taco Tuesday? Find the full recipe here.

 

Potato Skins.

Compare to: TGI Friday’s

Another game day favorite, except you can enjoy this one right on the couch in front of your TV rather than in the corner of a bustling restaurant. Score! Find the full recipe here.

 

Broccoli Cheese Soup.

Compare to: Panera

Mmmm…comfort food at its finest! Bonus points if you can recreate Panera’s famous bread bowls, too. Find the full recipe here.
